The Funk X "Rock the School Bells" Saturday

FilAm Funk, along with Paper Son, will be presenting "It Ain't Hard to Tell: Documenting Hip Hop" at the 4th Annual Rock the School Bells conference in San Francisco this weekend. We'll be sharing some documentaries and video clips with middle/high schoolers and discussing the importance of recording stories in hip hop with the hope of motivating them to create films of their own.

The conference will feature a killer line up of presenters and performers, including some artists who have been featured on this website. We're linking the old school with the new school with the new new new school!! So blessed to be a part of this amazing congregation of talent, genius, and passion.
